Gaetz’s and Barr in a scandal

scandal

Months before news broke that the feds were investigating him for sex trafficking, Rep. Matt Gaetz was at the center of a separate internal fight at the Justice Department. The sparring match involved an Oval Office meeting, a foul-mouthed threat from the attorney general and voting in Florida. It has not been previously reported.

In Aug. 2018, President Donald Trump nominated Larry Keefe a former law partner of Gaetz’s at the firm Keefe, Anchors & Gordon as U.S. attorney for the Northern District of Florida. More than a year after he was sworn in, and as Joe Biden was locking up the Democratic nomination, Keefe looked to open a wide-ranging probe into voter fraud in Florida, according to two people familiar with the matter.

To open the probe, he needed approval from the Public Integrity Section at the Justice Department’s headquarters. The lawyers there blanched at the statewide scope of Keefe’s proposal, the sources said, and indicated they thought it would be too broad.

Keefe told Gaetz that he was facing resistance from the Public Integrity Section, according to a third person familiar with the situation.

In a phone interview Gaetz described the conversation this way: “Keefe did not share with me any details of any investigative work, nor would he. We were having a broad discussion about legal doctrine related to jurisdiction and venue.”

Specifically, Gaetz said their conversation was about whether U.S. attorneys whose districts included state capital cities could investigate voter fraud in parts of the state outside their districts.

Gaetz described Keefe’s view of the law this way: Since presidential electors are certified in state capital cities, any harm related to their fraudulent certification would be caused there — meaning the U.S. attorneys whose districts included those cities should have the authority to investigate those crimes.

“I got the sense from Keefe that the DOJ wanted U.S. attorneys to be very passive when it came to election integrity,” Gaetz said.

After Keefe and Gaetz discussed the issue, the congressman had a meeting in the Oval Office of the White House with Trump. Gaetz said Trump brought up his views on fraud connected to mail-in voting. In response, Gaetz brought up Keefe’s legal theory.

“I said to him that an appreciation for the Keefe position on venue would give good U.S. attorneys in every capital city the necessary jurisdiction to root out fraud,” Gaetz said. “I also shared with President Trump that Keefe had faced substantial resistance from the Department of Justice.”

Gaetz said that Trump then told White House counsel Pat Cipollone, who was in the room, to tell Attorney General William Barr that Trump believed Keefe’s legal theory had merit.

When Barr learned about Gaetz’s conversation with the president, he was incensed. The attorney general called the U.S. attorney and gave him an earful, according to two people familiar with the call.

“If I ever hear of you talking to Gaetz or any other congressman again about business before the Department, I am going to fucking fire your ass,” Barr told him, according to one of the people with knowledge of the call.

Gaetz said he didn’t know about any testy conversations.

“I am unaware of any discussion Barr had with Keefe, but I did get a message from Keefe subsequent to my meeting in the Oval wherein Keefe said he was not going to be able to discuss these matters with me, and I got the sense that the politics of the Department of Justice were such that they did not want U.S. attorneys looking for election fraud in this type of very proactive way.”

Barr declined to comment for this story. A spokesperson for Trump also declined to comment. A DOJ spokesperson declined to comment.

Trump won Florida handily in the 2020 race.

Keefe, like almost every other U.S. attorney appointed by Trump, was asked to resign by the Biden administration and left office on Feb. 28. Keefe said in a statement: “It is not appropriate for me to comment on details related to my previous service as a U.S. Attorney. I stand by the decisions I made and the actions I took in honoring and enforcing the laws of this nation during my public service.”

Gaetz is reportedly being investigated for whether he engaged in sex trafficking. He has not been charged with a crime, and no women have publicly accused him of sexual misconduct in the three weeks since the New York Times first reported on the investigation. He has denied any wrongdoing.

At the time of Keefe and Gaetz’s attempted investigation, the issue of voting rights, especially in Florida and other swing states, was a top national political story. Republicans have long raised concerns about voter fraud hurting the legitimacy of elections, even though numerous studies have shown that there are very few actual cases. Voting rights advocates, meanwhile, engaged in a wide-ranging effort to help people convicted of felonies who’d completed their prison sentences register to vote.

A landmark constitutional amendment passed in 2018 restored voting rights to people in this category — some experts have estimated it could have let up to 1.4 million people vote in Florida who couldn’t previously, as ProPublica reported.

However, because of a state law and a court ruling, those people also had to pay any outstanding fines, restitution and fees before being able to vote — what has been called a 21st century poll tax. Former New York Mayor Mike Bloomberg offered to help pay down the fees, and Florida’s Republican attorney general asked the FBI to investigate if the move broke any voting laws.

Sigh of relief for Marco Rubio

Marco

Just a few months ago, conservatives were looking for a primary challenger to U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio and speculation swirled around a potential Ivanka Trump challenge to him in the 2022 primary.

The threat to Marco  Rubio from within the Republican Party eased on Friday with a “Complete and Total Endorsement” from Florida’s most famous resident: former President Donald Trump.

“Marco has been a tireless advocate for the people of Florida,” Donald Trump said in a statement issued by his Save America political organization.

“Marco will never let the great people of Florida, or our Country, down!”

Even though Mr Donald Trump has been banned from Twitter, the statement read the way his tweets used to sound, complete with unconventional capitalization.

The former president, Donal Trump was especially delighted about Marco Rubio’s performance during his service as acting chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee from May 2020 until Democrats took control of the Senate this year.

Donald Trump, who has long denied any involvement in Russia’s meddling in the 2016 presidential campaign, said about Marco Rubio:

“He also ruled that ‘President Trump was in no way involved with Russia,’ as he presided over the Senate Intelligence Committee on the FAKE Russia, Russia, Russia Hoax.”

Marco Rubio thanked former president Donald Trump in a statement and praised the former president’s “leadership on the major issues facing our nation.”

Mr. Marco Rubio, in his second term and the state’s senior senator, has had a mixed relationship with the former president. Both men sought the 2016 Republican presidential nomination and criticized each other harshly during the campaign.

Former President Donald Trump crushed Marco  Rubio in the 2016 presidential primaries. The night that Trump, then a New Yorker, soundly defeated Marco Rubio in his home state of Florida, the senator dropped out of the presidential race. (It was a rout. Rubio won only his home territory, Miami-Dade County. But winning 63% to 23% there, even though it’s the state’s largest county, couldn’t make up for Trump winning 48% to Rubio’s 24% in the state’s other 66 counties.)

After Donald Trump emerged as the victor, the two reached a détente, which involved Marco Rubio supporting just about everything Donald Trump said and did as president.

However, some Florida Donald Trump supporters have remained suspicious of Rubio, thinking he hasn’t been as pro-Trump as they would have liked.

“Our people who are your more hard-core Trump supporters have a disdain for Marco Rubio,” Joe Budd, the elected state committeeman from Palm Beach County, said in January.

Budd tried to get U.S. Rep. Matt Gaetz to challenge Rubio. Gaetz, who is since the subject of a major scandal, declined.

As Trump’s presidency came to an end, there was speculation that his eldest daughter would challenge Rubio in the 2022 primary. But in February, a campaign spokesman said she had told the senator she wouldn’t run.

2024 vision – DeSantis plan for battle for the sake of Trump’s legacy

2024

2024 plans for Governor Ron Desantis – The Governor is seen as the best person to carry on Trump’s legacy as the party’s national standard-bearer in 2024.

During the COVID-19 crisis, Governor Ron’s reputation was at stake. He was ridiculed and second-guessed for rejecting mask mandates and reopening businesses. Moreover, he also had controversies where he was accused of involving himself in a vaccine scam. His approach was compared, unfavorably, to other governors from both parties, including now-embattled Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo of New York. DeSantis’ popularity in Florida cratered.

“I think he’s the odds-on favorite to be the next president,” if Trump doesn’t run again, said Joe Gruters, a Florida state senator and chairman of the state Republican Party.

Such declarations can’t be discounted as parochialism in a state where two other Republicans — Sens. Marco Rubio and Rick Scott — nurture White House ambitions. Nationally, the picture is similarly encouraging for DeSantis.

At last month’s Conservative Political Action Conference for hardcore GOP activists, he finished second to Trump in one presidential straw poll and first in another from which the former president was excluded. A recent survey by Tony Fabrizio, Trump’s chief pollster in 2016 and 2020, showed DeSantis and several others competing for second place in a field led by the former president and showed the governor tied with former Vice President Mike Pence as the second choice among Trump’s supporters. Rubio and Scott both ranked near the bottom.

“When you look under the hood of those numbers, DeSantis garners a lot of support from Trump voters in the absence of Trump,” Fabrizio said. “As the media beat him up as the anti-Cuomo and DeSantis stood up for himself, voters liked that. They associate that type of scrappiness and speaking your mind with President Trump. He is inheriting a lot of that.”

Allies say DeSantis, who did not respond to requests for comment, relishes an adversarial relationship with a press that they believe has rendered him a Republican martyr, precisely the type who can position himself as heir to the Trump mantle. Those who work in or around his political orbit insist he is focused first on 2022 but acknowledge the temptations of 2024.

“Ron DeSantis has quickly become the most recognizable Republican governor in the country, and I think that only bodes well for both his re-election and what he wants to do after that,” said Brad Herold, DeSantis’ 2018 campaign manager.

Donors outside Florida are eager to get in on the ground floor, said Nick Iarossi, a Tallahassee lobbyist, and DeSantis fundraiser.

“I’ve been doing this for 20 years,” Iarossi said, “and you normally don’t have prominent donors from other states reaching out and saying, ‘Hey, how do I meet this guy? How do I support him? I think he’s going to be president one day, and I want to get to know him now. I want to support him for his 2022 election to make sure he wins if we need him running in 2024.'”

Governor DeSantis’s appeal isn’t isolated to Trump’s diehards. His job-approval rating in the Mason-Dixon poll was 59 percent among independents.

Jeb Bush, the former Florida governor whose mild brand of conservatism collapsed under Trumpism in the 2016 presidential primaries, rarely comments on politics these days. But in response to emailed questions about DeSantis’ future, Bush offered praise.

“I am out of the punditry business,” Bush replied, “but I am a fan of Ron DeSantis.”

Not everyone is, of course. Only 15 percent of Democrats in the Mason-Dixon poll approved of DeSantis’ performance. One Democratic group, Ron Be Gone, recently launched to push against his re-election bid and prevent him from becoming a strong 2024 contender.

“To run for statewide office, he invested in that cable news profile,” said Matt Caldwell, a Republican who lost a close race for state agriculture commissioner in 2018. “His relationships are different. If we go to a state party meeting, I’m going to see folks that I have personally volunteered and knocked doors with for the last few decades.”

DeSantis’ big primary victory and handling of the pandemic have earned the party faithful’s embrace, Caldwell added. This week, the governor convened a panel of science and medical professionals — including Dr. Scott Atlas, a former pandemic adviser to Trump — who share his opposition to mandates and lockdowns. Democrats plan to make Covid-19 central in next year’s race for governor. They point to his vaccine distribution program, which critics say has favored wealthy donors. They also note more than 32,000 coronavirus deaths and characterize DeSantis as someone who coldly obsesses over comparative data that makes Florida look better than other states.

“His arrogance and complete detachment from the pain and suffering of our communities is very telling of someone that is in this position to advance his political ambitions, and it’s obvious because they’re already discussing 2024,” said Debbie Mucarsel-Powell, a former congresswoman from South Florida and one of the leaders of the Ron Be Gone effort.

DeSantis backers say they are sensitive to the death toll but believe DeSantis made the right, tough choices to keep the economy running.

“With all due respect to those who have gotten sick or who have passed or who know someone who passed, I think we were able to ride the storm without destroying people’s businesses and people’s economic lives,” said Nelson Diaz, a Republican lobbyist and former chairman of the Miami-Dade County GOP.

The Mason-Dixon poll found DeSantis with substantial leads over two Democrats who could run to challenge him: Rep. Charlie Crist, the former governor who used to be a Republican, and Nikki Fried, the state’s agriculture and consumer services commissioner. And DeSantis is pushing for stricter vote-by-mail rules ahead of his bid for a second term, a fight that could further endear him to supporters of a former president who falsely claims the last election was stolen from him. Some Republicans who are friendly with DeSantis have abandoned the caution they usually preach in a state known for close elections and are projecting confidence for 2022.

“I think this may be one of the easiest gubernatorial re-elects that we’ve seen in Florida in a long time,” said Blaise Ingoglia, a state representative and former state party chairman.

“What people like in general is standing up for what you believe in,” Ingoglia added. “Be a fighter, right? And this is why Ron DeSantis has endeared himself to the Donald Trump base — a base I predict is not going to go away.”

Loyalty of Republicans questioned – half the Republican would leave Trump to join a new party

Loyalty of Republicans questioned - half the Republican would leave Trump to join a new party 1
Despite facing a second impeachment trial, former President Donald Trump demands loyalty from his Republican supporters. Donald Trump has faced a trial earlier this month for allegedly inciting a riotous mob that stormed the US Capitol building. The attack came after Trump spent weeks trying to overturn the results of the 2020 election. Five people died as a direct result of the assault, including a police officer, and scores more were seriously injured.

However, it came to an end on Saturday, 13th February 2021.

Even though Donald Trump is enjoying the warmth and support among the GOP voters, a survey conducted by Suffolk University-USA Today found that almost 46% of the respondents would let go of the Republican party and support a new one floated by Donald Trump.

“We feel like the Republicans do not fight enough for us, and we all see is Donald Trump fighting for us as hard as he can, every single day,” Brandon Keidl, a 27-year-old Republican from Milwaukee, said in an interview after being polled. “But then you have establishment Republicans who just agree with establishment Democrats and everything, and they don’t ever push back.”

According to a couple of reports that were released earlier in January, Donald Trump is considering the creation of a third party to discourage senators from voting to convict him during his impeachment trial. However, Maggie Habberman, a reporter with the New York Times said that Donald Trump was talked out of that.

She wrote that “There is also the fact that threatening a third party while simultaneously threatening primaries makes no sense, which some folks gently pointed out to him.”

Between 15th February 2021 and 19th February 2021, a survey was conducted in which almost 1000 Trump voters participated. 80% of them said that they were less likely to vote for a Republican candidate who had previously supported the impeachment of their former commander in chief, Donald Trump. However, 85% of them that will vote for Mr. Donald Trump for president again in 2024 if he wins the Republican nomination for a candidate. More than 50% of the respondents said that the Republican party needs to become “more loyal” to Mr. Trump, even if it comes at the cost of losing more establishment Republicans.

The result of Donald Trump’s impeachment trial saw a harsh split within the GOP as the former president launched a scathing attack on Senate minority leader, Mitch McConnell, calling him a “dour, sullen and unsmiling political hack.”

 

 

 

“He passed away a hero”: 42-year-old hardworking officer killed in Capitol riots

hardworking officer killed in Capitol riots

WASHINGTON: The U.S. Capitol Police officer Brian Sicknick was killed on Thursday night in the riots in Washington. Sicknick had been with the department for 12 years.

The U.S. attorney’s office in Washington has opened a federal murder investigation in the death of Sicknick. Acting Attorney General Jeffrey Rosen said, “The Department of Justice will spare no resources in investigating and holding accountable those responsible.”

Sicknick “was injured while physically engaging with protesters” in Wednesday’s riots.

Sicknick’s brother said, “After a day of fighting for his life, he passed away a hero.” “I would like to thank all of his brothers and sisters in law enforcement for the incredible compassion and support they have shown my family,” he added.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said, “On behalf of the House of Representatives, I send our deepest condolences to the family and loved ones of Officer Brian Sicknick, who died after defending the Capitol complex and protecting those who serve and work here”.

“The perpetrators of Officer Sicknick’s death must be brought to justice,” Pelosi added. “The violent and deadly act of insurrection targeting the Capitol, our temple of American Democracy, and its workers was a profound tragedy and stain on our nation’s history. But because of the heroism of our first responders and the determination of the Congress, we were not, and we will never be, diverted from our duty to the Constitution and the American people.”

The deputies in Volusia County will wear mourning bands in honor of Sicknick.

"medical emergencies" as Trump supporters invade Capitol

WASHINGTON: President Donald Trump’s supporters violently occupied the U.S. Capitol as Congress attempted to tally the Electoral College vote won by Joe Biden.

Vice President Mike Pence said he does not have the unilateral ability to discard electoral votes and he announced he would defy Trump’s request.

The reports say four people lost their life in the violent act.

As per the Police Chief Robert Contee, the four included a woman who was shot by the U.S. Capitol Police. Three others died in “medical emergencies.”

The mob tried to break through a barricaded door in the Capitol. The woman was injured by a gunshot, she was later pronounced dead.

According to the reports, two pipe bombs were recovered, each outside the Democratic National Committee and outside the Republican National Committee.

 

Trump says he’ll leave White House if Electoral College seats Biden

According to the recently released reports, on Thursday President Donald Trump said, he will leave the White House if the Electoral College formalizes President-Elect Joe Biden’s victory even as he insisted such a decision would be a “mistake”.

Trump says he'll leave White House if

“Certainly I will. But you know that,” Trump said Thursday when asked whether he would vacate the building, allowing a peaceful transition of power in January. “This has a long way to go,” Trump said.

“I think you’re dealing with a very fraudulent system. I’m very worried about that,” he said. “People are very disappointed that we were robbed.”

Trump spoke to reporters in the White House’s ornate Diplomatic Reception Room after holding a teleconference with U.S. military leaders stationed across the globe.

Trump said, “it’s gonna be a very hard thing to concede. Because we know there was massive fraud,”  noting that, “time isn’t on our side.”

At one point he urged reporters not to allow Biden the credit for pending coronavirus vaccines. “Don’t let him take credit for the vaccines because the vaccines were me and I pushed people harder than they’ve ever been pushed before,” he said.

Is Trump going to prison after stripping off power?

Is Trump going to prison after stripping off power? 2

After a whole fiasco of Election from November 4th, 2020, It’s pretty much clear, Donald Trump is not going to be back off. Trump’s personal lawyer Rudy Juliani has made a press conference on 8th November 2020 Trump will not concede, and fight a long legal battle to stay in power. The republicans already filed dozens of lawsuits against ballot fraud in several states. But why is Trump trying to desperately stay in power?

As the former special counsel “Robert S muller” said in his speech

“A sitting president can not be charged with crime”

That’a right. Donald J Trump can not be prosecuted or charged with a crime while he is in power. He needs to be stepped down and stripped off of his power to begin with.

But what are the charges are being brought for Donald Trump?

Sexual misconduct:

  • At least 26 women has been accused Donald trump of sexual misconduct since 1970.
  • In June 2019, columnist E. Jean Carroll accused President Donald Trump of sexually assaulting her by forcing his penis inside her in a Bergdorf Goodman dressing room in the mid-1990s.
  • And in September 2020, model Amy Dorris said that in 1997 Trump forcibly kissed her, groped her all over her body, and gripped her tightly so she couldn’t getaway.

All of these allegations are very serious and if convicted can lead to 10 – 20 behind bars.

Fraud in Charity and Donation

Last year December, 2019 Donald J trump has paid 2 Million in a plea deal for using Trump foundation donation and charity for own spending and funneling money in businesses. New york attorney general Lelia prosecuted Donald Trump and Trump foundation for misusing charitable funds for political purposes.

Source: NY attorney General’s office

Federal income Tax Violation

Pointing to the new york times report, from 2016 to 2017 Trump has paid $720 federal income tax while being one of the billionares of United States. Federal procecutors are looking into the possible probe and charging for tax evasion and money laundering.

Trump organization is known for creating shell or fake companies, LLC and organizations and funneling money from one end to another eventually making the net profit as net operation loss.
Although it’s pretty unclear if IRS is going to take a part on this.

 

Is Trump immune to Justice Department Probe?

It’s a legal issue that a sitting president (who has been elected and in power) can not be charged and convicted of any crime (except murder), and Donald Trump can also pardon himself. But as Trump lost 2020 election, it’s a possibility that Turmp will face numerous lawsuit and Justice department will go against trump in possible 2021.
